WHAT IS A CREDIT UNION?
A credit union is a co-operative financial institution, which is owned and controlled by its members. Arising from the need to have a credit union in Kingston & St. Andrew, on October 26, 1967 the Registrar of Co-operatives, Mr. James Kirlew, gave his blessings for the establishment of City of Kingston Cooperative Credit Union Ltd (COK) along with two shillings and six pence – the required registration fee for incorporating a credit union.
COK continues to honor its founding members who contributed to making a vision becoming a reality.
Let us meet the team who are COK’s founding members.
